Thanks vapors. I accept that I am powerless over alcohol, without question. That acceptance was harder to arrive at than most things I've ever done. Keep fighting the good fight!

"I remember an older gent a meeting I went to asked "who here has been sober the longest?" one said 10 years, another 11, another 25... the gent just sat there and smiled
he said "well those are great numbers but you are fooling yourselves, yesterday means nothing if you lose sight of today... so the fella that has been sober the longest, is the guy that got outta bed first this morning.""

That is a really wonderful quote. Says it all. Good luck to you, Pat. I don't know ya but I wish you well.

And I also want to echo that hopefully they can rehabilitate your love for 85 GD, too. :P
